Biography

Tobey Maguire (born 27.6.1975) Tobey Maguire is an American actor, best known for his lead role in Sam Raimi's 'Spider-Man' films and in 2013's 'The Great Gatsby'. Tobey Maguire: Net Worth According to Celebrity Net Worth in 2014, Tobey Maguire has a net worth of 75 million USD. Tobey Maguire: Childhood Tobey Maguire was born in Santa Monica, California, to Wendy Brown and Vincent Maguire. Wendy is a screenwriter and producer and Vincent is a construction worker and a cook. His parents divorced when Tobey was two years old. Maguire was moved around a lot as a child and dropped out of high school before graduating. He later completed his GED in 2000. Tobey Maguire: Acting Career Tobey Maguire's debut film appearance was in the 1989 film 'The Wizard', though he had no speaking lines in the film. During the 1990s, Maguire ended up playing a number of roles in which the character was significantly younger than his own age. After taking on a number of television roles and advertisement opportunities, appearing alongside the likes of Roseanne Barr, Tracey Ullman and Chuck Norris, Maguire landed a lead role in 'Great Scott', a TV series on the Fox Network. Unfortunately for Maguire, the series was shelved after just five weeks. Tobey Maguire found himself in a number of the same auditions attended by Leonardo DiCaprio. The pair of young actors became good friends and vowed to help each other to find work. When DiCaprio got a role in 'Parenthood' that they had both auditioned for, he recommended Maguire for a guest role on the show. Similarly, in 'This Boy's Life', DiCaprio was given the lead role and Maguire had a smaller role as one of his character's friends. Tobey Maguire was originally in the film 'Empire Records' which stars Liv Tyler and Renée Zellweger but asked the director, Allan Moyle, to be released from his contract and for all of his scenes to be cut out. He later attended Alcoholics Anonymous to seek help for his underage drink problem. Maguire has remained sober ever since. Following his recovery, Tobey Maguire chose to steer his career path away from that of DiCaprio's, so that they would no longer always go for the same parts. In 1997, Maguire narrated Ang Lee's 'The Ice Storm', which starred Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver. His role in 'The Ice Storm' led to a number of 'coming of age' style roles, in films such as 'Pleasantville' (with Reese Witherspoon and William H. Macy), 'The Cider House Rules' (with Michael Caine and Charlize Theron) and 'Wonder Boys' (with Michael Douglas, Robert Downey Jr., Frances McDormand and Katie Holmes). In 1999, Tobey Maguire gave an acclaimed performance in 'Ride With the Devil', alongside the actress Jewel Kilcher, who is better known as the singer, Jewel. Tobey Maguire's biggest break came when he was cast in the lead role, playing Peter Parker and Spider-Man in Sam Raimi's 'Spider-Man' trilogy. The films also starred Kirsten Dunst as Maguire's love interest. Following the success of 'Spider-Man', Maguire went on to star in 'Seabiscuit', the critically acclaimed film about the racehorse of the same name. 'Seabiscuit' was the third film for which Tobey Maguire was given a production credit; the previous two being 2002's '25th Hour' and 2003's 'Whatever We Do'. 'Seabiscuit' also starred Jeff Bridges and Chris Cooper. 'Seabiscuit' was followed by a role in 'The Good German', directed by Steven Soderbergh and also starring Cate Blanchett and George Clooney. In 2008, Tobey Maguire had a cameo role in Ben Stiller's comedy 'Tropic Thunder', which starred Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr. Following this, Maguire appeared in the 2009 film 'Brothers', for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe award. He then starred alongside DiCaprio in Baz Luhrmann's 2013 adaptation of 'The Great Gatsby'. Tobey Maguire: Personal Life Tobey Maguire married his long-term girlfriend, Jennifer Meyer in September 2007. The wedding took place in Kona, Hawaii. The couple have a daughter, Ruby Sweetheart Maguire (b. 2006). Their second child is due in Spring 2009.

Controversial Leonardo Dicaprio Film Pulled From Video Sharing Site


Leonardo Dicaprio Tobey Maguire

The actors reportedly hated the finished version of director R.D. Robb's Don's Plum, which was subsequently pulled from release thanks to legal action on behalf of its stars, but earlier this month (Jan16) producer Dale Wheatley challenged the duo's legal representatives by posting it on his website FreeDonsPlum.com.

The film, which also features singer Jenny Lewis, Kevin Connolly and Jeremy Sisto, was accompanied by a statement from Wheatley. It read: "Although the film remains banned in the U.S. and Canada, as a writer and producer I am making the film available under my copyright for the sole purpose of promoting my work as an independent filmmaker."

And on Wednesday (27Jan16), Wheatley added an open letter to leading man Leo, stating, "I can no longer remain silent. I can no longer allow the defamation and lies that you perpetrated against Don's Plum to scar the great work of the artists who created it. I'm not afraid of you or your lawyers anymore. I have endured enough. I'm going to speak with the freedom that our Constitution affords me.

The 5th Wave Review

Good

Also based on the first in a trilogy of post-apocalyptic teen novels, this thriller feels like it could be a worthy successor to The Hunger Games saga, with its smart story and strong characters. The premise feels remarkably grounded, as it follows a feisty teen while her world is turned upside down by an alien invasion. And Chloe Grace Moretz gives one of her most complex performances to date as a quick, flawed heroine.

The title refers to the stages of invasion, as unseen aliens quietly take over the planet. And then not so quietly. Most of humanity has been killed by disasters or disease, with the survivors waiting for whatever the next wave of attack might be. Before this, Cassie (Moretz) was a normal 16-year-old with a crush on the cute Ben (Nick Robinson). Now she's running for her life, trying to rescue her little brother Sam (Zackary Arthur), who has been whisked to safety by the gung-ho Colonel Vosch (Liev Schreiber) and his military resistance. Along the way, she meets farm boy Evan (Alex Roe), whom she reluctantly trusts mainly because he's such a hunk. Meanwhile, Ben finds himself in Sam's unit in the newly formed child's army Vosch is training to hunt down aliens who have taken human form.

Director Blakeson keeps the pace brisk without rushing past important details. This makes what happens feel unusually believable, and it also allows the actors to add personal touches to their performances. Moretz finds Cassie's innate courage and quick physicality, but nicely balances it with her impulsive decisions and adolescent self-doubt. As in most of these movies, she has to be in a love triangle, but her scenes with both Robinson and Roe offer something a bit more intriguing, mainly because both actors have surprises up their sleeves. There's also a fourth person in this relationship in the form of Maika Monroe's tough-girl fighter Ringer, perhaps the most intriguing character on-screen.

Tobey Maguire Stunned By Chess Master's Skills


Tobey Maguire

The former Spider-Man, who plays 1970s chess master Bobby Fischer in new movie Pawn Sacrifice, met Carlsen at a screening of the film and was invited to see the Norwegian board boffin at work.

The actor says, "He was blindfolded... and he played four games simultaneously and there was a 10-minute per-person maximum on their moves and he beat all four of the people. It was amazing to watch him hold all of those games.

"It started sequentially, so he'd make moves on boards one, two, three, four... and then he was switching back and forth - one, four, two, one, three in different random patterns. He really held all these games in his head."

Pawn Sacrifice Trailer


Sometimes, the greatest conflicts and clash with smaller and internal conflicts in a major way. Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire) is the greatest chess player in the United States, and he is desperate to seek out the greatest players in the world. The problem is, they happen to be Russian, and with the Cold War at its height, the American government steps in to inform him that his game will be used as propaganda. This sends him down a path of introspection, as the pressure of a simple chess match holds the weight of the Cold War upon his shoulders.
